InternetLearning's approach to e-Learning is based on a 5-channel approach:
A course per definition consists of various Modules, and we follow this approach by identifying contextual topics, i.e. a theme from the curriculum or a practice paper.
Such a contextual document is offered as a pdf with links to the various Online Classes, branded as an e-Learning Course. Students and Learners can then decide which Modules they want to do first, and either print the pdf and work through it as a paper document and do the exercises with pen and paper, or "attend" the classes.
At the end of the Course typically a self-marking Quizz could be included that will be done online, giving the learner immediate feedback
We start our content-creation processes by making video-memorandums of typical questions, using only the writing and talking parts, or theory-sessions of concepts and techniques.
We believe that explanations are very important, so we start our process with students and learners by giving them access to proper explanations first - in such a way that it could be rewinded and re-watched as many times as may be required.
These video-memorandums are then made interactive, i.e. the video stops frequently and then the learners must answer questions on the screen. As a rule we try not to use Multi-choice questions either, but fill-in questions. These questions are what would typically be asked if a traditional extra class was presented, and may include questions such as "Did you hear what I just said?", or "Do you understand what we just did?".
As a result of the striking similarity with traditional extra classes these interactive videos as branded as Online Extra Classes, and Learners must "attend" these classes at specific times on specific days of the week, as they would've if they had to go for extra classes.
Covering the more traditional expectation from parents, we also provide practice worksheets and test papers in pdf form, free of charge!
The secret to success in mathematics lies in learning to ask questions, and we feel very strongly about this!
So strong, in fact, that we make WhatsApp grade groups available to any learner who wants to check in and ask a question. These questions could be to ask for assistance in interpreting a homework question, guidance on what to do, to simply check whether an attempt to a question was correct or to look for a mistake in a submitted attempt.
A minimum of once-a -week all learners and students are required to submit a Google Form, where they answer two basic questions:
1) What are you currently busy with or have you started something new in class?
2) When are you writing a test next (so that we can attempt to adequately provide e-Learning content in preparation for the test).
